Tickets are $40 for regular admission, or add an extra VIP hour of beer tasting for $20 more.
For those up for a real challenge, the DC Beerathon returns this Saturday with a bar crawl of 26 different bars each offering a 12 ounce beer (yes, that is a potential 26 beers to drink), as well as food specials and entertainment as you navigate the course which covers several neighborhoods in NW. Tickets are $65 for 11+ hours of drinking, or get started an hour early for and extra $15. Check in is either at Black Jack or James Hoban’s.
